Scholarship Chairwoman, Secretary Pam Smith

NCBBA is committed to higher education and has two scholarship programs: one in support of Dare (First Flight HS, Manteo HS, and Cape Hatteras HS)and Hyde County (Ocracoke) High Schools and one in support of our Members/Members Children. Both scholarship programs are renewable for four years and totals $2,000 per student.

In 2009 the Board of Directors approved a Member/Members Children scholarship. The scholarship can be used by members for retraining or other higher education for trades or academics. The members children aspect is to provide higher education.

Since the inception of this program, NCBBA is proud to have contributed in excess of $60,000 to Dare and Hyde County High School students for continuing education.
